The classroom of EAST features cutting-edge technology ranging from cameras and software to 3-D animation along with computer-aided design. Students use the software and hardware to curate their projects, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

EAST is offered in 254 schools around Arkansas. The program began in the year 1996 in one of the classrooms in Greenbrier. Later the program made its way to places such as Louisiana, Oklahoma & Pennsylvania. EAST is a nonprofit organization which is based out of Little Rock

The officials of EAST have announced that more than 14 schools are going to feature this program such as Washington and Benton counties. These schools are going to run the program from fall 2019. By the looks of it, four elementary schools across Springdale such as Tyson, Parson Hills, George, and Monitor will feature this program. Folsom Elementary School located in Farmington and Washington Junior High School at Bentonville is also part of the program.

The CEO and President of EAST, Matt Dozier said that the decision of establishing EAST environment promises to provide the staff, students and community partners with a memorable experience which eventually makes an impact on the future endeavors of the program.
